Apple has announced a new 10-part documentary series, Big Beasts, narrated by Hollywood star Tom Hiddleston. The series will premiere globally on April 21st, exclusively on Apple TV+, ahead of Earth Day on April 22nd. Two new episodes will premiere each week until May 19th.

From the creative team behind the Apple TV+ award-winning Tiny World docuseries, Big Beasts was filmed over two years, and will take audiences on an epic journey around the globe, from freezing poles to tropical rainforests, to meet nature’s most captivating giants, including the gray whale, the elephant seal, the giant otter, the gorilla, the hippo, the brown bear, the ostrich, the orangutan, the tiger and the polar bear. Viewers will see that it’s not easy being a giant — the larger the animal, the greater the challenges they face — as the series captures rare and first-ever footage using specialised equipment and next-generation filming techniques.

Big Beasts is produced by Plimsoll Productions with Emmy Award winner Tom Hugh-Jones and Emmy Award nominees Grant Mansfield and Martha Holmes executive producing.
